Discipline: Product

The Future Lab Program™ T is an interactive tabletop projector that uses touch to control images projected onto a tabletop or object. Sony’s unique sensing technologies help it detect movement, height and angle of the fingers of multiple users, allowing it to discern gestures and project them as images for a newly intuitive interaction. We announced the concept prototype and loaned it out to developers in 2016 for co-creation, pursuing a minimalist structure like a lab tool, with ideal shape for heat release. Other features include a height-adjusting lock mechanism and a stand built to help manage cords.

This interactive projector won over the jury with a minimalistic and understated design. The execution is well suited for an innovative product and application, while the use of colors and materials mark an honest and clearly structured design approach. The design is clear, a logical reflection of the product's superb functionality.
